When is it time to say 'No' designing a pain giving device?
I just came across the Pavlok a device that by design is to cause pain; Reference: Pavlov's Dogs . THE FIRST DEVICE THAT BREAKS HABITS BY DELETING TEMPTATION. PAVLOK ASSOCIATES A MILD ZAP WITH YOUR BAD HABIT, TRAINING YOUR BRAIN TO STOP LIKING THE HABIT. TH...

Maxim make the best parts that no one can ever get. Are you a "stale_member" too?
I was telling someone about the Maxim Integrated     MAXREFDES73# reference design a wearable, mobile galvanic skin response (GSR) system . We were hoping to get a few of them for some parapsychology experiments. When my client asked how much it cost, I tri...

This is a quick walk through of the Large Scale Systems Museum (LSSM) in New Kensington Pennsylvania that I made yesterday.  

Dave McGuire is the President/Curator of the Museum.

For up-close still shots of the machines, both inside and out, see http://www.bpaddock.com .

The audio makes it sound like a very noise place, really it is not, just the microphone picking up the background cooling fans.

How would Google's car handle this real world problem? :

I once almost had a accident on Interstate 80, in a construction zone.

Somehow a car that was over packed pulled from between some
construction equipment, in front of me.

This driver could not see out any window but right in front of him,
and he was pulling *ACROSS* the interstate traffic, not going with
the flow. He could not see out the passenger window, that was facing
me.

He shot out from between the construction equipment about twenty feet
in front of me, while I was doing 45 MPH, remember it was a
construction zone.

The correct solutions to the problem was to floor the gas, so that I
could get in front of him while there was still space, and get off on
the right hand brim of the road.

Any system that applied the brakes would have guaranteed that a crash
happened in that situation, there was not enough stopping distance.

CSF Leak like shown here lead to my wife's suicide: http://www.kpaddock.org
The pain is beyound "severe"
Story
Introduction
I was born with "The Knack", per Dilbert, and have been programming and designing Embedded Systems ever since.  I am a American Society for Quality -  Certified Quality Software Engineer, with background in Analog/Digital hardware system design and layout.

Designing low power 'Green' systems are now all the rage.  I have designed Embedded Systems like these, that ran on batteries or other low power energy sources, such as Intrinsically Safe systems, for years.

I worked for many years in a electronic Contract Manufacturing (CM) environment. I know what it takes to have a idea come in on the back of a napkin, and get a finished product out the door, from BOM to PCB. See my blog on the subject: http://blog.designer-iii.com/contract_manufacturer/20090616-211514-Is-there-a-rule-of-thumb-for-estimating-the-cost-of-getting-circuit-boards-assembled

My work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)/National Institute for Occupation Safety and Health (NIOSH) Mining Division may be found in the these links: http://www.wearablesmartsensors.com and http://www.designer-iii.com .

You can find my name in the First Edition of the uCOS-II Real Time Operating System (RTOS) book: "MicroC/OS-II The Real-Time Kernel; A complete portable, ROMable scalable preemptive RTOS", and the wxWidget book: "Cross-Platform GUI Programming with wxWidgets (Bruce Perens Open Source)".

My particular interests are in the area of requirements management and Software Safety. See my award winning web site on the subject at http://www.softwaresafety.net , and my blog http://blog.softwaresafety.net .

Specialties:

The prevailing attitude that "Memory is Cheap" doesn't cut it in the world of Embedded Systems. I get code to fit into parts (others have picked), that are too small. I translate code between different micros and compilers. Besides the software aspects of things I also do micro design, analog design, power supply design, and board layout.

During the heyday of the Dot Com boom I was the lead author of Circuit Cellar Online's Resource Links. Steve Ciarcia said I set the standard by which other link sites were judged, at that time.

I was also a paid member of the Circuit Cellar AskUs staff.

From the final "Connect Time" in Circuit Cellar Issue #80, March 1997: "I do want to thank a few individuals who have contributed above and beyond the call over the last 10 years (and, I'm hopeful, for years to come). Specifically, **Bob Paddock**, Pellervo Kaskinen, George Novacek, Jim Meyer, and Ed Nisley. I could always count on one of these sharp guys to have an intelligent, well-thought-out answer to some of the most off-the-wall questions I've ever seen."  - Ken Davidson former SYSOP/Editor-In-Chief Circuit Cellar Magazine

Off-the-wall problems has always been one of my hobbies, as is bike riding along the trail http://www.avta-trails.org/  and cooking.
